look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Corked 375ml bottle poured into a Blvd Smokestack tulip. No date, but marked Batch 008.

A: Pours a deep ruby brown, something like dark amber maple syrup in color. Absolutely zero head, some residual rising bubbles, but no head or lace at all.

S: The cab barrel jumps to the front on the nose, leather, sour cherries. Cider vinegar, sea water. Pungency really pops as it warms.

T & M (I think it's hard yo separate them in sours): Sharp acidic punch up, buggy, funky, crazy dry. Wisps of sweet and sour fruitiness wane in and out. A dusty basement kick, like the most pungent blue cheese you've had. Really contributes to the puckering Warming up, the wine characteristics show up, oaky tannins, tobacco, hints of smoke. In a word, wild.

O: Still can't handle these all the time, but this certainly is a treat.
